Wiki Biography: Greg was born on August 25, 1946, in Kansas City, Missouri, and began acting at age 13 in an adult readers' theater group there. He earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Speech and Theatre from the University of Missouri, taught for a semester on an assistantship through MU, and was nominated for a Woodrow Wilson Teaching Fellowship. Upon graduation, he landed a major speaking role in the film Adam at Six A.M. (1970), which was being shot partially in the Kansas City area. In the film -- which starred Michael Douglas and was produced by Steve McQueen's Solar Productions -- Greg played a pharmacist vying with Douglas for the attention of a local girl played by Lee Purcell. Upon the movie's completion, the writers and producers invited Greg to the West Coast and helped launch his acting career. He settled in a small apartment in downtown Hollywood at 1769 North Orange Drive (up the street from Grauman's Chinese Theater and across from where the Kodak Theater now stands) and followed the young actor's course of going on auditions while holding down a series of jobs to make ends meet. He subsequently married and to support his growing family, worked as a reporter for a series of newspapers in Southern California, ranging from The Pasadena Star-News to The San Diego Tribune. He covered every possible type of news story but kept his hand in show business by writing stage, film and TV critiques, reviews on books about show business, and profiling dozens of Hollywood figures including directors Frank Capra, Billy Wilder, Stanley Kramer, Robert Wise and Spike Lee, and actors ranging from Cary Grant, James Stewart and Gregory Peck, to Jim Carrey, Richard Dean Anderson, Keenen Ivory Wayans and John Goodman. He often appeared on radio, TV and at live stage events discussing film and television. In 1990, Greg was offered the job of TV columnist by The Arizona Republic newspaper, accepted, and moved with his family to Glendale, Arizona, a suburb of Phoenix. When his children were grown and embarked on careers of their own, Greg left the newspaper business and again became a full-time professional actor. While Greg performs in films shot in Arizona near his home, he often travels to Los Angeles and other locales where auditions and roles take him. He is a former member of the SAG Arizona Branch Council, the Television Critics Association and the Board of Governors of the Arizona Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences. He is listed in Who's Who in America and Who's Who in the World as actor, writer, media critic and advocate.
